Ian Mann, Chief Executive Officer of ECSC, commented: "We are pleased to report that ECSC's momentum has continued into the first half of this year, with strong growth across both our MDR and Assurance divisions, owing in part to our focus on converting increasing numbers of Assurance clients and those with incident response retainers to long-term MDR clients.

"Following the relatively short-term impact of Covid-19 in 2020, the teams have adapted well to new ways of working within both our sales and delivery functions, and the group is well positioned to maximise opportunities in a recovering economy.

"On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Ian Castle for his commitment and look forward to his continuing contribution to the company."
